Megan Cox

Fully-certified since 2012 as a crisis and trauma pastoral counselor (MAR, Pastoral Counseling), I’ve been successfully companioning clients all over the country while facilitating their self-growth. My services aim to help heal trauma and abuse, work with those who suffer from dissociative disorders and, even, to serve “ex-vangelicals” who are leaving their church — but not their faith. I lead spiritual process groups. I am trained in EMDR and DNMS (Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy). Certified in bereavement, crisis response, trauma therapies and suicidology. I am also a Chaplain, certified with the ACPE.

If none of our affiliate counselors/ coaches are a good fit for you, please reach out and we will help find a better fit. Our affilates partner with our organization and share our heart for healing.
